SMART Program Extends to Municipal Light Districts

At the end of May 2019, the Dept. of Energy Resources (DOER) announced an agreement to incentivize projects in municipal light plant geographies under the SMART program. The incentives are different based on the amount of funding pledged by each municipality with total funding announced here for each. The program will incentivize projects by buying down roughly 1/3 of the project cost with a $1.20/w upfront incentive for projects < 25 kW-DC, which covers the typical size for households, nonprofits and small businesses. This program operates on a first come first serve basis so anyone considering a project in a municipal light plant should reach out here as soon as possible!
